Veterinary Continuous Professional Development (CPD)

Transitioning from a national to international focus

The emergence of VAHL from Schloss-Seminar

In 2000, Dr. Beate Egner founded Schloss-Seminar and began organizing veterinary education and continuing education programs in Germany.

The course content is based upon the needs and wishes of the participants. 

The most up to date diagnostic and treatment procedures are included in the course curriculum.

Schloss-Seminar’s reputation has spread beyond Germany’s borders. 

We currently partner with renowned German and international universities. In addition, our programs and seminars are currently held on every continent.
